Clinique Revolutionized Skincare In Three Easy Steps

Clinique opens in VR Surat Virtuous Retail Clnique store Gujarat skin care allergy-tested dermatologically-tested three-step skin care beauty products shop

Popular skincare giant Clinique debuted in 1968 when Evelyn Lauder, daughter-in-law of Estee Lauder, who founded the esteemed eponymous luxury beauty line, came across an article in Vogue about the significance of skincare regimes and was inspired to create a clinically-proven range of products.

Lead by Evelyn Lauder, the brand was the first to have all its sales employees wear lab coats, a symbol of their commitment to offer scientifically sound products.

Clinique was the first dermatologically-tested, allergy sensitive skincare brand and today it is best know for its three-step beauty routine, recommended to consumers based on the results of a detailed questionnaire, ingeniously designed to pair the perfect products for particular skin types.

Offering a holistic three-step skin care process for cleansing, exfoliating and moisturizing for four different skin types, Clinique at VR Surat now offers Surtis the best there is in skin care.

Zara’s Golden Growth Story

Zara opens at VR Surat first Zara store in Gujarat high street fashion retail outlet Virtuous RetailHigh street fashion brand Zara has a success story like no other. While most retailers are facing the heat of a slowdown in the global economy, Zara’s revenues are witnessing double-digit growth every quarter. With designs inspired from the runway made available to consumers at attractive prices, it’s no surprise that the brand has been resilient even during the turbulent economic downturn.

It is also fitting that Zara is focused on emergent cities like Surat in an effort to tap rapidly growing markets. Zara recently unveiled its first retail outlet in the region last week at VR Surat to much excitement, a testament to the changing demands and preferences of savvy consumers in Gujarat.

The Economic Times spotlights the brand’s growth story, excerpts:

Spanish fast-fashion brand Zara can now be literally weighed in gold in India as its average sales per store has soared much above other top apparel brands to be at par with the country’s largest jewellery chain Tanishq.

Zara has reported high double digit growth in same-store sales in a market where most retailers struggled for a single digit like-to-like growth due to a slowdown in consumer spending in aspirational goods. Experts say what worked in Zara’s favour in India is pretty much what works for the brand elsewhere — affordable, copycat versions of the latest fashions and making them available to shoppers in double-quick time.
